Terry Wil­liams leads Stam­ped­ers past Alou­ettes

Medicine Hat News - - SPORTS -

CAL­GARY Terry Wil­liams scored a trio of touch­downs for the Cal­gary Stam­ped­ers in a 59-11 win over the vis­it­ing Mon­treal Alou­ettes on Fri­day.

Al­ready as­sured a play­off berth, Cal­gary (12-1-1) could clinch a home play­off date be­fore the end of Septem­ber if the Win­nipeg Blue Bombers (93) beat the Ed­mon­ton Eski­mos (7-5) on Satur­day.

An­thony Parker and Rob Cote had touch­down catches and Tunde Adeleke re­turned a punt re­turn 51 yards to score for the Stam­ped­ers. Mar­quay McDaniel hauled in a two­point con­vert catch.

Cal­gary kicker Rene Pare­des was good from 32, 45, 39, 24 and 14 yards to ex­tend his streak to 18 field goals in a row.

Tyrell Sut­ton scored the lone touch­down for Mon­treal (3-11). Boris Bede kicked a 28-yard field goal in front of an an­nounced 26,394 at McMa­hon Sta­dium.

Stam­peder run­ning back Jerome Mes­sam, the CFL's lead­ing rusher, did not play Fri­day be­cause of a knee in­jury.

His re­place­ment Wil­liams had played two games this sea­son, but not since Week 3 when he had one carry for a loss.

The 25-yearold out of Kutz­town Univer­sity col­lected his first three ca­reer CFL touch­downs on one- and two­yard ef­forts in the first half and a 45-yard rum­ble in the fourth quar­ter.

Wil­liams to­talled 156 rush­ing yards on 16 car­ries.

The Stam­ped­ers ex­tended their win­ning streak at home to 17 in a row dat­ing back to 2015.

Mon­treal is the only team to have beaten the Stam­ped­ers so far this sea­son with a 30-23 win at home in Week 4, but the Als have lost nine of 10 games since then.

Head coach Jacques Chapde­laine was fired ear­lier this month and re­placed by gen­eral man­ager Kavis Reed.

Cal­gary starter Bo Levi Mitchell com­pleted 14-of-19 passes for 265 yards and a pair of touch­down throws in al­most three quar­ters of work.

He came out of the game for backup An­drew Buck­ley when the Stam­ped­ers led 4911. Buck­ley com­pleted five of seven passes for 43 yards.
